Varnish is a content caching platform, which is sometimes called a caching HTTP reverse proxy. It’s a website accelerator tool that can accelerate the speed of a website by up to one thousand percent, depending on its content. Anytime a visitor accesses any page on a website that uses Varnish, the platform caches the page and delivers it instead of the web server when the visitor opens it again. Thus, the web browser request from the visitor is not processed by the server and the web page will load much faster, since the Varnish platform can serve data many times faster than any server software. The end result is a substantially faster loading site, which leads to an improved website browsing experience. In case any of the cached web pages is updated on the live website, the information that Varnish stores in its memory is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will not end up seeing out-of-date information.

Varnish in Cloud Web Hosting

You can use Varnish’s full potential and accelerate your websites’ load speed regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you’ve picked and you can enable and configure the platform with a few clicks of the mouse using the intuitive graphical interface offered by our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. During the procedure, you will be able to select two separate things – how many websites will use the Varnish caching platform, i.e. the number of instances, and how much content will be cached, i.e. the amount of system memory. The latter is available in increments of 32 megabytes and is not linked to the number of instances, so you can use more instances and less memory and the other way around. In case you have plenty of content on a specific website and you win many website visitors, more memory will give you better results. You may also consider using a dedicated IP for the websites that will use Varnish. Hepsia will offer you simple 1-click buttons for switching off or rebooting any instance, for deleting the cache for any site and for checking in-depth logs.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can employ Varnish to increase the loading speed of any site that is hosted on a dedicated server with our company when the Hepsia Control Panel is pre-installed on the machine. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready to be used at no additional fee, but you will also exert full control over it via the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with graphical interface. It will take just one mouse click to start or terminate an instance or to clear the cached files for any Internet site that’s using Varnish and in case you’re more advanced, you can also check the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 gigabytes of memory for data caching purposes, so even in case you host an enormous number of websites on your server and they all use the Varnish caching platform, the difference in their overall performance will be visible. You will simply need to wait for a little while until Varnish caches whatever webpages the visitors open on their end. The platform performs best when the websites use a dedicated IP address, but owing to the fact that our dedicated servers come with three charge-free IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
